Gremlin has successfully adapted the MB board-game across the 16-bit platforms.
Hopefully, Hero Quest will pave the way for more Games Workshop conversions as the system Gremlin has employed could quite easily lend itself to other games of this ilk. Providing the quality stays this high (and the presentation is polished up) they should all be just as successful.

A definite thumbs up from me for this - many games try to do what Hero Quest has done and fail. A good buy.

The Control system works exceptionally well with the mouse. Perhaps the only niggle is having to go back to search areas that you've already covered but that's a matter for your own memory and judgement! Because searching ends your turn, you should do this last of all. You'll love Heroquest. It's simple, addictive and fun. Graphics are excellent, very colourful and bright, and I would recommend this game for explorers and RPG fans.

Hero Quest could be worse. It's quite absorbing - more so than you'd think if you were watching someone else playing it. The 14 quests aren't too difficult - at least, not at first - and because you can attempt them in any order there's plenty to keep you interested, especially with the promise of further data and scenario disks to come. Give it a go - you might find you like it despite yourself.

If you feel like taking the plunge and exercising some naked aggression, you can't go far wrong with Hero Quest. The game works because it is simple in concept and in its execution, instantly playable and addictive. Great if you want to discover the joys of multi-player RPGs.
Ohne Zweifel hat sich Gremlin Mühe gegeben, hat man acht Monate Entwicklung und Programmierung investiert, um die 3D-Sicht perfekt, die Menüs übersichtlich und die Grafik herausragend zu machen. Es hakt aber an den erwähnten Details - und die entscheiden ganz wesentlich über die Qualität.
Spielerisch stellen die harmlosen Labyrinthe und schwachbrünstigen Monster leider keine echte Herausforderung dar. Am Brett lassen sich immerhin beliebig neue Irrgärten basteln, aber hier kann selbst die Datadisk „Return of the Witch Lord“ nicht viel retten: Mögen sich in den 10 weiteren Mini-Quests auch ein paar harschere Finsterlinge tummeln; letzten Endes werden sie doch wieder viel zu schnell zum Alteisen zählen (Grafik, Sound, Gameplay und unsere Wertungen sind identisch zum Hauptprogramm). Naja, für Einsteiger und Fans der Brettspielvorlage könnte Hero Quest das Richtige sein...

Comme souvent, la version Atari ST de HeroQuest livre une prestation sensiblement identique à celle observée sur Amiga. Seule la musique est légèrement différente, mais pas vraiment de quoi vous bouleverser.
